Session Cancellation Notices
As with all paint studios similar to The Baroquen Canvas our livelihood is dependent on seats being filled. In the event that a session does not meet the requirement of 6 seats reserved, or inclement weather, the session will be cancelled. It is imperative that you check your SPAM folder frequently for cancellation notices. This will be the sole source of cancellation notice and will occur at least 2 hours prior to the session start time. Those who have seats reserved will receive a studio credit towards a future session.
Are gift certificates available?
Yes! Gift certificates are available for adult session at $35.00 per certificate and are worth $35 dollars. We also offer gift certificates for children’s session at $15 per certificate and are worth $15.
Are you available for fundraising, and what about donations?
The Baroquen Canvas will travel for fundraising events with a guaranteed MINIMUM of 25 painters, with a travelers fee of $50.00 within 30 minutes of London. Maximum travel time is 1 hour, 1 way. A percentage of the proceeds will be given in donation to the fundraiser host.

Do you have separate classes for kids and adults?
There will be special events geared toward children 12 and under, and Painter Tots for 6 & under such as:
“Poppy and Me Teas” for grandfathers/fathers and their granddaughters/daughters
“We’re Exceptional” for Exceptional Individuals (those with special needs)
Day Camps and MORE!
One paying adult must attend with children 7-12. No other non paying adults will be permitted to stay on campus due to limited spacing.
Children 6 years old and under may have 1 free accompanying adult to assist as needed using the child’s canvas. These are special classes called “Painter Tots Presents” designated for 6 and under.
Families with more than 1 child registered may have 1 adult to assist per 3 children. Studio seating maximum is 30 seats total. Again these are reserved for paid painters and their non paid parent to assist. No other spectators will be allowed to remain on site due to limited spacing.
The rate for designated children’s events varies and includes a light snack.
Mini Sessions will cost $15 per attendee and includes an 8×10 canvas. Mini Sessions last 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes.
What is the maximum amount of painters managable?
The Baroquen Canvas is a mobile paint company, meaning the venue location will be safely determined by the event host/hostess. The Baroquen Canvas has enough materials to accommodate up to 50 painters at one time.
All parties must be scheduled at least 14 days in advance.
When do you post the monthly schedule?
The monthly calendar will be posted during the final week of the preceding month.
Can I bring beverages and food?
Please Note: Beginning March 1st, 2018 The Baroquen Canvas will be strictly on-site, meaning the event location will be provided by the host/hostess. This also means your venue, your rules! Should your event be hosted at another public location, please adhere to the policies of that venue.
Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for occasional savings and drawings for our sessions.
I have no artistic ability. Can I really do this?
Yes, almost everyone that comes to The Baroquen Canvas for the first time has the same thought about it. In fact, we suspect many of you out there want to come and paint, but are so convinced you cannot do it, you won’t even come and try it. Give it a chance, we are sure our instructed classes will send you home surprised at how much artistic ability you really have but never tapped into. Check out what others are saying about our instructed classes on our video page.
Will my painting be dry by the end of the class?
Yes, we have hair dryers on site to speed up the drying process. You will be able to take your new masterpiece home with you at the end of the night.
What should I wear?
Whatever you want! Just remember while we do supply aprons, once the paint dries, it cannot be removed. In some cases, we are able to get it out if the paint is still wet, but this is not the norm, so proceed with the greatest of fashion caution! Please leave all personal items locked in your vehicle. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items. This includes jackets and purses.

Everyone is registered but me and the event is listed as sold out. Help!
You know what they say about that “early worm!” Class seating is very limited, but the amount of seats available is always listed for planning purposes. If a class is listed as “sold out” you can use Facebook Messenger 15 minutes AFTER the event start time to see if there have been any unforeseen changes. In case of cancellations, spots will be offered based on the order the message was received. There is no guarantee however that once class has begun that messages sent will be addressed in a timely manner.

Where are you located?
We are wherever you are, that’s where the parties at! As of March 1st, 2018 The Baroquen Canvas will be strictly operating on site, which means the host/hostess will provide the event location, we will do the rest!
Please feel free to contact us about hosting your own paint night!
To ensure everyone gets the attention they deserve, and the experience they paid for, seating is limited to 24 for events held in studio. For this reason everyone needs a paid seat to stay on premises during all classes. No one will be permitted to stay without having registered online first.
Do I have to pay online?
We currently only except payment online via Stripe payment, OR cash where you will receive a payment receipt. Checks will only be accepted from local businesses and those recognized as “tax exempt” such as churches, schools, local resources, etc. Invoices and W9s will be provided. All invoices MUST be paid within 2 weeks of receipt.
In the event of an “impromptu session” such as Snow Day events or Spring Break Dates, cash will be the only form of payment accepted at the door. Cash payments at the door will not be accepted for any session unless specially listed in the title. PLEASE REVIEW OUR CANCELLATION POLICY FULLY BEFORE BOOKING. Security is one of the biggest considerations in everything we do.
Can I just walk in or do I have to reserve a seat?
ALL seats are reserved online. You are more than welcome to message via Facebook Messenger or stop by 15 minutes AFTER an events start time to one of our general public events to see if there has been any unforeseen cancellations. Should there happen to be an open spot, you may be given the opportunity to attend using CASH ONLY. As there is no way of taking other methods of payment in studio. If a class is listed as “sold out” we cannot accommodate walk-ins.
GENERAL CLASSES: Guest should NOT arrive early to allow for clean up of the previous session. Please arrive at your listed start time. Class ends promptly after the group photo to allow for clean up and resetting for the next session. Any special accommodations needed please include in the “additional comments” section when making your reservation.

The rate for hosting a party is $20 dollars per child for a 2 hour party, with a 12 guest minimum, and $15.00 per child for parties with a minimum of 25 guests. Please note there is a 30 minute turnaround between all Baroquen Canvas events in order to set up for the next event. All parties must have a designated hostess for communication, painting choice, and payment.
With limited availability for parties, deposits are required the day of booking. We tend to book a month in advance so don’t procrastinate!
Parties are available only during certain days & hours, As the instructor is a school teacher as well. Most weekday evenings, all day Saturday, and 2 to 4:00 on Sunday is available. We will always do our best to accommodate your request!
There is a MINIMUM of 12 guests per party, maximum is determined by the event location and hostess.

It will be the sole responsibility of the hostess to recover payment from all guest. This is how all studios like The Baroquen Canvas work. The down payment covers the first 6 guest at $20.00 per child, or the first 6 adult guest at $35 per guest. A remaining balance will be charged to the credit card used upon booking. This covers guest 6-12.
On the day of the party, if all 12 required guest do not attend, the credit card on file will be charged to cover those not in attendance. For example, if you book a party for 12 and only 8 show, the credit card used to book the event will be billed for the remaining 4 guests. Again all parties require a “hostess” for billing and communication.
